Colorful in Tropics: Keen on Green

 I've been dying to show you all these shorts. I snagged them a couple saturdays ago at Reruns Vintage warehouse for 10 bucks! They were actually pants when I purchased them but I thought they'd be so much cuter as shorts. It only took me about an hour and I wore them out that night to the drive-in with some good friends. I am so glad I got these shorts because it has been so much fun to wear these colorful parrot earrings with them. The earrings were actually a gift from an incredibly thoughtful and sweet class mate of mine. A fashion lover herself she thought that I'd enjoy these earrings and a few other gorgeous pieces that were handmade in her home country of Kenya. I've gotten so many compliments on them already and can't wait to have more fun with them and the shorts in the future. What do you think should I buy more vintage shorts like these?






The shorts were of course from Reruns ($10). The fun blouse was borrowed from my mother's closet ($0). The colorful scarf was a trade at Arizona Trading Company and just happened to match the earrings perfectly ($0+$0). The sunglasses are old from TJ ($20). And finally the kitten-heel white pumps were a thrift ($4).
Total out of pocket: $34

Thank you miss Lindsey for a lovely afternoon chat and the great pictures. You can check out her blog here!

  3. Lovely! To me, this outfit is very Jackie O - yet the abstract headscarf makes it more modern.
